Husky 1640 6.5x55, early 1940's I think, properly tweaked by last owner w/ LaPour 3-way and irons removed. FX-II 3x20mm. Honest-to-God hunting rifle and a joy to carry.

That said, I just picked up a LH Stiller with a Lilja #2, Jewell trigger, and stuck in an EDGE that I'm really liking a lot.

Will have to shoot exceptionally to supplant the KoO however.

Oh, the Stiller is chambered for the classically superb .270 WCF!


but i got the blue swede that u will never own smile

The one that leaves my safe the most often is my '50 Marlin 336A 35 Remington, with the vintage Weaver K-4 on top and puting the 200 CoreLoct's where I want them to go it's hard to beat!

I had to go back and check, yep, two 'similar' threads, no criticism.

THIS thread:

My favorite rifle -- Win 70 XTR Featherweight.

I like others as well but that '81 style stock & checkering just lights my fire.

THAT !!

In yrs past I was ADDICTED to the Rem M 6 pumps. Still really like them and have 'some'.

But I have fallen head over heels for the 'CLASSY', slim, trim, svelte, CURVACEOUS Featherweight.

Is that one that Jan re-did the bolt handle on, when he was still with Martini Gunmakers?

One of mine has an original ZG-47 bolt handle done that way by them, I like it, but, have found a couple of longer Obie-style bolt handles and am having these installed on a couple of my other 21/22 rifles.

I still prefer the factory "round bolt" in these to any other rifle I have ever seen and the one I have is well used, pristine bore and shoots like the proverbial lazer.

To date, I have owned 8 of these superb little rifles, kept 6 as a couple had minor cosmetic issues and I have several ZGs as well. I have never seen an original 7x64B, I would do almost anything to get one of those actions to go with the ZG action I have to build a pair in 7x64B and 9,3x64B......great stuff,eh! smile

That's the one. Wish he wasn't so far away!
I am currently getting an original round bolt, single trigger 21H 8x57IS worked on by my local gunsmith, dropped it off last week to get a NECG three position locking safety and bolt shroud installed. When it's done it just might be my new "favourite"!
but if I could find a ZG47 in 9.3x62 I might have to reconsider that...

Mine was my Vanguard S2 in 257Wby. I made the mistake of letting one of my best friends borrow it. He said I couldn't have it back and would have to accept cash instead.

I'm ok with it, kinda been wanting to upgrade to a 257Wby in a Mark V action anyway. Just haven't seen the right one pop up in the classifieds. If I'd known mine wasn't coming home, I would have jumped on Safariman's custom Pre-64 when it came back up for sale a few weeks ago!


Those who must raise their voice to get their point across are generally not intelligent enough to do so in any other way.

Mine would be a tossup of Ruger tang safety ultralight in .257 Roberts or my Rem Mountain Rifle blue/walnut in 30-06.

For sentimental reasons the 336, 30-30 Marlin I got from my parents at the age of 12. Then it was a 338-06 Weatherby SBGM that converted me to a bolt gun guy. For the last couple of seasons it has been a Weatherby SS Carbine in 7mm-08. Now I have another 7mm-08 coming soon bought off the fire that may take its place, you never know.

I'm fortunate to own some nice hunting rifles so, this is a tough one. My favorite is probably my pure stock Ruger 358 Win M77 Hawkeye. It shoulders well, it is a pleasure to shoot and, reloading accurately for this caliber is quick and easy. A close second is my CZ 550 American in 9.3x62....it is almost a toss-up.


Start young, hunt hard, and enjoy God's bounty.

Kute, I have been offered a 21 7x64 Brenneke by a Gentleman I know in Queensland....he also has a ZG47 in the same chambering.
Both are close to pristine.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

For me its a tie between my 3 Browning Aceras for first place. CZ 527 Target Royal comes in a close second. I have much nicer rifles that those 4 but for some reason they get picked up the most.
